For the record… This is why we are going to computer rankings! Yes the correct teams are there, but holy cow 3-6 is out of order. I know it’s hard to quantify who’s better then who, when you don’t see everyone play, or don’t play common schedules, but this is as bad a spread of votes I’ve seen in quite some time in my humble opinion.
I’m going to get killed for this but… CAL should not be in the top 4. Last year we jumped all over Neumann for their huge win over Farmingdale early in the year, watched them blow lesser teams out and it wasn’t until February that they fell from the top 2. This year’s CAL team is a very good team, but other then a split with Farmingdale and an OT loss to BA, what have they done. Fairfield beat them handily, split with Farmingdale and lost to BA in OT also, and has played a much harder schedule to date (The Empire is a stronger conference then the CHE this year). So to have Southern over Fairfield and both under Rowan and CAL is based on what?
Somebody please attempt to justify that for me! With logic and tangible data… Because this is how I’m looking at this.
Rowan, Fairfield, CAL and Southern are clearly 3-6.
CAL - lost to Fairfield, doesn’t paly Rowan, doesn’t play Southern
Rowan - beat Fairfield (1 more to play), doesn’t play CAL, doesn’t play Southern
Southern - split with Fairfield (1 more to play), doesn’t play CAL, doesn’t play Rowan
Fairfield - beat CAL, split with Southern (1 more to play), lost 2-1 to Rowan (1 more to play)
This is why the computer is coming. Nothing personal, just reality! Too many agenda’s!
